LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Family members say former Arkansas governor and U.S. Sen. David Pryor has been moved to a rehabilitation center for treatment after he suffered a stroke earlier this month.

His son, former U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, says the family is optimistic about David Pryor’s recovery. Mark Pryor tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2dMfMhz ) that his 82-year-old father left the Washington Regional Medical Center last Saturday and has been moved to a rehab facility.

David Boren, a former U.S. senator who now serves as president of the University of Oklahoma, calls David Pryor his “best and most lasting friend” from his time in the Senate. Boren says David Pryor is able to take a few steps now and is working on getting his speech fully back.
